Chickpeas & Potato Open Sandwich

Sandwiches are definitely easy to make and very quick to dish out, you can make sandwiches with anything. A simple vegetable filling to a rich and fingerlicking filling, anything suits prefect to make sandwiches.My today's recipe goes for chickpeas & potato stuffing, but this sandwich is an open sandwich, you doesnt need two bread slices. Just a toasted bread slice is quite enough to make this nutritious,filling sandwich. You can feed easily anyone with this lipsmacking chickpeas and potato open sandwich. I went for an easy potato and chickpeas masala to top this open sandwich.

This nutritious sandwich will definitely fill any hungry tummy within few minutes. To make this sandwich bit cheesy, i topped the chickpeas and potato filling with some grated cheese, i just served them without melting the cheese, if you want a melted cheesy topping dont forget to keep this sandwich in a preheated oven for few minutes. You can serve this sandwich for a lunch, else for a snacks, even served with some salads these fabulous open sandwich makes an excellent evening dinner. You have numerous choice to enjoy this healthy, filling and satisfying sandwich.This open sandwich goes for this week's blogging marathon, as am running with 'Special theme' as this week's theme and i picked chickpeas as this week's star ingredient.

I'm a very sandwich-kind-of-a-person, especially when I'm eating alone. I love open sandwiches for their versatility. One can add anything from left over curry to chutneys and cheeses. I really like this fun combination of chickpeas and potato for a sandwich.
